I'm undeclared, not registered for any party so I didn't vote in the Republican primary.

As for the general election it was Palin vs. former Governor ( pre Murkowski ) Tony Knowles. I voted for Knowles, not because I like him that much ( he's too slick for me ) but for the one single reason he helped champion the program Denali Kid Care up here. The single best program aside from the permanent fund that benefits Alaskans. It's proof that the dreaded socialized medicine not only works but works better than private insurance. I didn't qualify for it for my kids but I know a lot of working parents who do and trust me it rocks. Imagine being able to take your kid to the doctor, ANY doctor you choose, anytime they need it and it costs you ZERO. It's not a program for welfare people, it's a program for single parents to moderately low income families. I have never known anyone who was ever turned down service who had it. They cover everything except braces. In contrast I pay a premium every payday, still have a deductible, and still have had to fight and appeal to the bean counters to get a prescription for my kid filled.
